With all of the extra time Minnesota residents are spending at home these days, it’s a great time to start thinking about taking on home improvement projects. A simple way to completely transform your home’s interior is with trim carpentry updates. Trim carpentry, also known as finish carpentry, includes all of the carpentry trim in your home around cabinets and walls that give it a finished feel. Updating your trim carpentry can completely alter your home’s interior space.  

At The Construction Group, we specialize in both rough home carpentry services and trim carpentry. In this post, we’ll share some ideas for improving your home with trim carpentry.

The Appeal of Trim Carpentry

If you’re still a little murky on what trim carpentry entails, think of it as all the little details that give your home a finished look and feel. The main type of trim carpentry that comes to mind is interior trim, but it can include anything inside or outside of your home that helps make your home feel complete. The primary purpose of trim carpentry is to hide all the minor flaws that can show anywhere there is a seam in a home, like where a wall meets the floor, or to add a more ornate appeal.

Because trim carpentry includes highly refined details, there’s a degree of artfulness to trim carpentry services. A good trim carpenter will have a strong eye for all of the small details that create a beautifully finished space.

Here are a few common types of trim carpentry found in homes:

●        Wainscoting

●        Window casings

●        Banisters

●        Cabinets

●        Baseboards

●        Crown molding

●        Ceiling coffers

Re-Imagining Your Trim Carpentry

While it may seem like a minor component of your home’s aesthetic, changing up the style and implementation of your home’s trim carpentry can create an entirely new feel of a home. Many homes are equipped with the standard molding that was originally built into the home. You may be surprised to learn that a wide array of molding and trim options is available for modern homes with far more to choose from than traditional crown molding or standard trim.

Here are just a few trim carpentry design ideas homeowners are embracing:

●        Bold or contrasting crown molding, wall trim, or ceiling details

●        Mixing textures by integrating trim with shiplap, wallpaper, and other wall designs

●        Place trim carpentry above cabinets, around built-in shelves, and around ceilings
